Lost in Feelings

Monday, February 27, 2012

So, I skipped work today because I just felt that I couldn't face the gossip and pettiness of it all. I figured it could be a "mental health day." I think it may be more than that though.
I couldn't sleep last night. I have all of these depressing and negative feelings and I don't understand why. I'm succeeding in health and fitness, my relationships are all doing well (As I see it), and I do love my job for the most part. Why must I dwell on the sadness of the past or the future?
Right at the moment, I'm sitting outside the gym trying to calm down before going inside. I just feel like hiding and crying. I thought blogging might help. I still feel like running away. This is not the first time I have had these feelings, but I always thought they were connected with current events in my life. I have no reason to feel like this now.
Oh, I'm so confused.

    Fight or flight is what you are experiencing. You need to sit down somewhere quiet and analyse what it is that is giving you these feelings. Cry if you have too, scream into a pillow to release it all. It happens to us all. But by sharing you have released some of the tension.

Praying for you to feel good. You are achieving so much. Do not let it take you backwards. You can overcome this, you can, yu can. We are here for you. emoticon

    When I worked, I had to take mental health days but couldn't call it that. Take it and have no regrets. Do something nice for yourself---other than food. And lean on facts and not feelings.

    So spend the day crying! Sometimes we just need to let out all the frustrations and disappointments of life. There's nothing wrong with that!! I hope you feel better soon and if it's at all possible, try to see a therapist or a counselor. It's very comforting and therapeutic to talk!
